Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

The brake warning will come on for low brake fluid or the parking brake applied. There is a sensor for both of these which can be to blame for this warning. The shoes and pads would not cause this warning. If you own a volt meter I can help you test these.

What sensor?

I do not believe in this, I see every thing is going to be charged. Please cancel my application and do not charge my account. Did not like this and do not trust it as I see it.

There is a parking brake sensor that detects if the parking brake is in the rest or any percentage of applied setting and a sensor on the brake fluid reservoir that detects the brake fluid level.
